Day 5: Why is the wind never at my back?

5 Jan

day 5

I’m training for the Hyannis Half Marathon, so on tap for today was a 7 mile run.  With the Charles River in my backyard, I mapped out a 7 mile loop and reveled in the fresh air (seemingly always blowing in my face) and the therapy that running provides.  I felt suprisingly great seeing as I’m just coming off a vacation, a busy week back in the real world, and a few Friday night sangrias.  I haven’t done much distance running since training for Boston a few years ago, but quickly got into stride as I threw on Pandora (Pop Fitness station) and hit the pavement.  There’s nothing like sweating out your thoughts and leaving it on the road.  This photo is taken from the Longfellow bridge, about 5 miles into my run…and yes, that’s ice.  I’m not in Puerto Rico anymore….
